1. Petticoat skirts

I first spotted the petticoat skirt in American Apparel a while back and resisted buying it. 76euro. Gah. Then literally the next day Bebe Zeva from Fated to be hated posted this look (first pic), and wow. Its amazing! So I headed back down to American Apparel after convincing myself that life would be better if I owned this skirt, they had just one left, perfect. I very excitedly tried it on, to find it wasn't quite the dream skirt I'd been dreaming of. So disappointing. I mean it was lovely, but for 76euro I'd wanted amazing. So I resisted, but I still can't get it out of my head! I'm heading to Belfast next week and have decided if they have it there I will buy it!

2. Over sized jumpers

I'm living in giant jumpers at the moment. Makes leaving my cosy flat a little bit easier in the moment.

3. Nutella

This squirrel is me. Every time my boyfriend walks into the kitchen he catches me with a jar of Nutella and a spoon. Its gone beyond just 'loving' it, I'm physically addicted, I even tried to make my own one day. I'm trying to shift the last few pounds so need to give it up. I can't decide if I'm best to go cold turkey, give it up completely or like...over eat it? Allow myself to have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner (which I would gladly do) until I'm sick of it and can't face it anymore. Tough decision. My mouth is watering right now.

Boyfriend Fit

I never thought I'd say this but...I think I'm over skinny jeans. For the moment anyway. I mean I won't be throwing out any of my Topshop Leigh's, but they might take a back seat for the moment.
I'm loving the laid back feel of these loose fit, low rise jeans, always worn with cuffed hems.

Jeans- Old Topshop Harpers, Jumper- Fred Perry

I feel like I'm channelling my inner 16 year old, Avril lavigne loving self when I wear them low on my hips, although I'm trying to keep my underwear hidden this time round. I try to keep the upper half slightly more feminine with a loose fit, but low cut top, which you can't see here because it was baltic out and I needed my biggest, heaviest jumper to keep me warm. 

I loveeeeeee this jumper. More than words can say. Its so big and warm, and I wear it any day that I have to spend an extended amount of time outdoors. Its super.

I'm planning the laziest weekend ever. The boy is gone to Manchester so I'm going to sit in and watch crap movies he won't let me watch, and eat so much chocolate. Its exciting really.

Hope all is well.

1. Jessica Hart

I'm in love. Not even joking, I really am. Jessica Hart is the dream. Her style is just everything I wish mine was, as is her face. If your as in love as I am you can follow her blog here or if you really feel like stalking her...her Instagram @1JessicaHart.

2. This necklace

I first saw this necklace floating around the tumblrsphere and fell in love, and then seen it on my favourite blogger India Rose and now I love it even more. I've been trying to put off buying it as I'm making a conscious effort to not spend, but I keep coming up with reasons to buy it, like, it's perfect for work. All the necklaces I have are long, and when I lean over someones head I hit them with them, this wouldn't happen if I owned this chain. Its available here.

3. Cara Delevingne's eyebrows

Serious eyebrow envy. I don't even need to say anything. Perfection.

All black.

 Dress & Shawl - Urban Outfitters, Coat - Zara, Shoes - River Island, Hat - ASOS

Hi pals,
World's worst blogger here, how are you? 
I'm so happy to be sitting here with a cup of tea, about to read a shit load of blogs! I feel like I haven't done that in so long. 
My brothers one year anniversary was yesterday so I just took a little step back in life to deal with being an emotional wreck. I'm feeling good today, although slightly hungover.
So this is what I wore yesterday. Possibly a bit OTT for hanging out in a cold, wet cemetery but whatever makes ya feel better right? It was definitely more suited for the drinks afterwards. 
This dress is the new love of my life.
The hat is a little beaut as well, as is the shawl which I got for cheap in Urban Outfitters a few years back. Its like wearing a blanket out and people can't judge. Super.
Hope life is treating you all well.

Peace & Love
